Odds for First WR Drafted in 2024 NFL Draft

Marvin Harrison Jr.

Marvin Harrison, Sr., was one of the great wide receivers in the NFL. A Super Bowl champion with the Indianapolis Colts, he was Peyton Manning’s go-to option for years, with over 15,000 receiving yards across the regular season and playoffs.

Teams are betting on Marvin Harrisson Jr. having a career similar to his father’s, if not better. With over 2,500 receiving yards and 31 TDs in three seasons at Ohio State, the arguments are there for Harrison Jr. to be the first wide receiver to be drafted on Thursday.

He is a heavy favorite to be the first WR drafted and the first non-QB draftee .

He is mostly favored to be drafted #4 overall , currently assigned to the Arizona Cardinals, with all other picks 1-8 offering plus odds.

Malik Nabers

With nearly 3,000 receiving yards in three seasons at LSU, Malik Nabers was a standout wide receiver. As he transitions to the pro game, he’s expected to have similar success in the NFL.

Nabers is second on the odds list to be the first WR drafted. He is plus odds to be the first receiver drafted , but could be a gamble worth taking if the unthinkable happens and Harrison Jr. isn’t selected first.

If odds are an indicator, his is expected to be picked #6 overall , currently the NY Giants, or even #5 overall , currently the LA Chargers.

Rome Odunze

Rome Odunze is coming off a big year with the Washington Huskies after helping the school win the Pac-12 championship and make a run to the College Football Playoff Final.

As a four-year college player, he is expected to be more seasoned when he enters the NFL. With 1,640 yards and 13 TDs, he was an essential contributor for the Huskies.

Did he make enough plays in his senior year to convince a GM or coaching staff that he’s the best available WR? Unless a team is high on him, he’s staring at long odds to be the first wide receiver drafted .

His lowest odds of being a high draft pick appears to be #6 overall to the NY Giants.
